While waiting for my husband to shower yesterday, I decided to watch Hungry for Change. I've heard great things about the documentary, and while I'm not one who obsesses over eating healthy or clean, I absolutely love learning about food.
Halfway through the documentary, they started talking about juicing. Now I've been hearing all the hype about juicing and thought about starting, but for the price of the juicer and the weekly cost of fruits and vegetables, I knew I would have to talk my husband into the idea before committing. It really didn't take much for him to jump on the idea. He's more of a health nut that I am, and seeing as how he already has to force himself to eat vegetables, he figured juicing would be the best way to get his daily serving.
We spent the next few hours reading reviews on juicers and gathering recipes. This is the juicer we ended up going with:
This Breville is endorsed by one of the guys from the documentary. We honestly didn't know that until we took it out of the box and saw his picture stuck on the juicer. We purchased this bad boy at Bed Bath & Beyond (with a 20% off coupon, it ended up only being around $160) last night along with lots of juicing veggies.
We thought about all the ingredients we were going to throw in the juice. We both looked at each other and were like, "Do you realize how bad this is going to taste?"
Less than five minutes later (talk about a quick meal!), a bunch of ooohing and awwwing, we ended up with this much juice:
Let me tell you... OH MY GOSH! It was absolutely freaking amazing! You could definitely taste every vegetable that we threw in, but for some odd reason, it just mixed so perfectly. We are both beyond excited to start our juicing adventure.
Side note: if you haven't seen Hungry for Change, I highly recommend it. I watched it on Netflix, but I've seen it at RedBox among other places.
